Hi all…

Each time I see the promos for Max Payne, I get a little more interested. It looks like a combination of Constantine (which was panned, but I liked it) and a cop movie.

This is the first time that I’ve seen a comic approach to setting up the story online however… Check out this clip from IGN. It overlays a graphic novel approach with clips from the movie to give just a little bit of a feel for the backstory.

Let’s hope that Mark Wahlberg can pull this off. The story looks compelling. Hopefully the action will be too.

October 17 at a theater near you. Check it out. I know I will. 🙂

  1. I want to see this too. The trailer looks interesting but I’m not sure if they’ll be able to completely pull this off. I hope there’s a slow-motion shot of Max doing a flip while shooting, just like in the video game.

  2. It will certainly be an interesting experience. Didn’t the original Max Payne take the idea of bullet time from the Matrix to a whole new level also? (I’m not much of a FPS guy, I’m more of a Civilization junkie kind of guy.)

  3. oh my god…
    it ll be wonderful
    u know i m a big fan of max Payne
    i completed the game in one month u know ..that was the first game i completed

  4. Impressive. I don’t think I ever even played the demo, but I like the background for the world Max inhabits. Hopefully they’ve done it justice. The trailers certainly have piqued my interest!
